Hydrocephalus is that the buildup of fluid within the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. the surplus fluid increases the dimensions of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain.

Cerebrospinal fluid normally flows through the ventricles and bathes the brain and vertebral column . But the pressure of an excessive amount of spinal fluid related to hydrocephalus can damage brain tissues and cause a variety of impairments in brain function.

Hydrocephalus can happen at any age, but it occurs more frequently among infants and adults 60 and over. surgery for hydrocephalus can restore and maintain normal spinal fluid levels within the brain. many various therapies are often required to manage symptoms or functional impairments resulting from hydrocephalus
